About Mike Nixon

In January, 2009 my husband and I ecstatically purchased our unit which we refer to as 'Starfish'. We continually refurbish Starfish- adding a stove, dishwasher, painting it a crisp clean white, purchasing linen curtains, an unusual queen size bed with drawers for storage underneath, a queen size sofa sleeper, a six piece wicker set that is oh so comfortable and remodeled the closets to include additional shelving, and a white armoire next to the sofa for yet more additional storage.

We live in New Orleans and have visited various areas of the Fl Panhandle for the past thirty years. Seacrest Beach has it all and our Starfish is just perfect!

Mike Nixon purchased this condo in 2009

Why Mike Nixon chose Panama City Beach

This is the most fabulous location ever. For me it is all about location. The views of the Gulf are excellent. It is within walking distance to many restaurants. The grounds within a mile in both directions are well manicured with palms and brilliant soft green grass. There is a smooth path for walking, jogging and cycling. The architecture of the neighboring communities is inspirational. It has a gigantic pool and jacuzzi. We LOVE it!!

What makes this condo unique

The view of the Gulf, proximity to great restaurants of all price categories, nature walk at Alys Beach, pristine beaches, fishing, cycling, jogging, canoeing in the nearby state park coastal dune lakes, unbelievable shopping opportunities- I cannot overstate that fact, yet the property is located in a very serene location and for a reasonable price.

Enjoyed our stay...

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed in Starfish for several days. The unit looked similar to pictures. The bed was very comfortable, but the sleeper sofa was not. It has a thin mattress and is held together with zip ties and straps. Hope the next improvement is a good mattress then I will up the stars. The dishes and appliances were good. Housekeeping missed cleaning shelves and trays on top of fridge, but other than that it was clean. My only real complaint would be the book that had tons of recommendations for eating/activities and a map was severely out of date. Map, dated 2009, showed beach access that was closed, so DON'T try to find any in Aly's Beach and check to see if restaurant is still in business...many have changed. The tram to get you back and forth to the beach was friendly and comes if you call. Never saw it when needing to go home, so we walked quite a bit. If you have lots of gear you might want to look for a closer location. It's two blocks to the opening then almost the same to the beach. Lovely area, felt safe, enjoyed the beach!!! Oh, and the beach access is private so vendors try to require you to rent chairs/umbrellas instead of bringing your own. We found that if we went to the 3rd vendor to the left the prices dropped significantly! Restaurants were good/pricey/and had longs waits. George's was nice, a bit warm on the sunny side inside, pricey, but yummy! Several grocery stores just a short drive East, as well as a CVS and some fast food. Several places to buy trinkets and tee shirts, but much less expensive in Panama City Beach.

Somewhere On The Beach

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at Seacrest Inn for many years.We usually stay in a smaller unit and since we got in early this year we were able to get the bigger center unit.The balcony was fantastic for early morning coffee & late night wine.Gentle breeze & beautiful sunshine wasn't too bad either.We also liked that we have a sofa (futon) for kicking back after a wonderful day at the beach.The tram is something new & the beach arm bands.We never have experienced that before.Don't forget your armband or you can't get on the beach.Everything about the unit was as pictured,but it could use a little deep cleaning .Not as clean as most of the units we have stayed in,but other than that the bed sleeps great & the shower was fantastic after a long day on the beach.There are so many things to see & do in the area we never have enough time to do them all.Be sure to take a trip to 30A Cafe and if you go between 5 & 6 it's two for one meals.Martini night was worth it & be sure you have reservations.Our new favorite hangout was Acme Ice House with a short walk you can be there in a jiffy.We didn't go to Red Bar this year,but if you haven't been you must go for the music.If you like good smoked wings try Salty Sue's & Fried Seafood go to Boondocks.We loved the fireworks on Memorial Day from our balcony & the Free concert in Rosemary Beach with a great band.Always something to see & do on 30 A.Bike rentals across from George's restaurant if you are into that & don't forget to pack some beach chairs as this unit did not provide any.Thanks for another great vacation along 30 A with plenty of sunshine & we are thankful we got out of town just as the rain began hit.

Cozy and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

My daughter and I enjoyed staying at this condo very much. It is decorated great. It is also very comfortable.

We were not able to access beach entry in alys beach.

We would recommend this place if you don't mind a little walking to get to the beach. The water and weather was amazing.

Great location with a great view!!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a wedding and greatly enjoyed this unit!! I have stayed in a few other units in this building and this one is by far the biggest with the best view. There were a few small things that need a little work but are not a deal breaker. The pull out sofa has a few issues. The bottom part of it is missing springs so anyone larger then a kid will sleep at a weird angle with their legs on the ground. The unit also has a steamer that works but will shoot boiling water at you so be careful!! It would be a lot easier if they just has an iron. Overall the unit was great, and I would defiantly stay there again!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is so beautifully decorated and has almost everything you could need for a stay. Lots of shopping and restaurants near by and a ton of other stuff about 30 minutes away. Everything was very clean, the bed was super comfy and plenty of pillows. Although it rained the entire time, we really enjoyed this place. Will be looking to book again in the future.
